Who knew fabric softener sheets can be used to loosen stuck on food in pots and pans? Simply place a fabric softener dryer sheet in your dirty pot and fill with hot water. Add a drop or two of dish detergent to help cut through grease. Allow pot to sit overnight. After soaking, wash pot as normal and rinse thoroughly.
The magic is the anti-static and softening agents in the dryer sheets. They help loosen and soften baked on food particles, therefore making clean up a lot easier.
